Bonus! Pretend Podcasts! The Tugwell Tapes Pt 2: three more "pretend podcasts" from that weird yesteryear-style parallel universe when Andrew had a regular weekend radio show on 6 Music and Richard was his jolly guest, and these music-free newspaper reviews were a brief initiative.
We reach the end of 2006, including a solo show by Richard on Christmas Eve, and two shows from the beginning of 2007, a brave new year - and just three months away from it all being taken away from us - 7 January and 13 January. The tone continues to be silly and cheeky and mischievous and topical and giggly; David Cameron is leader of the Opposition, Tony Blair the Prime Minister, Ruth Kelly something to do with education, a man from the band Towers Of London seems to matter, David Beckham is moving from Real Madrid to LA Galaxy, and in Andrew's shameful and self-indulgent absence on December 24, the lovely Lucy Porter plays the Richard role to Richard's Andrew. And yes, Richard does manage to get the phrase "brackish" onto national radio during the day. (Thanks to archeologist Graham Tugwell for these finds. Incidentally, the webcam pics that accompany these bonus podcasts are not specific to the recordings, but are roughly correct in terms of era, and specific to the studio.)
